On this 12-day adventure, you'll get to know the rich farming history of Bolivia's highlands as you visit lively markets, speak with local farmers and their families, and enjoy the traditional flavors and foods of the region. Dividing your time between the countryside and the city, you'll discover La Paz and Lake Titicaca, the Uyuni Salt Flats, and eastern farming valleys on this best-of-Bolivia trip.
La Paz on Foot
La Paz on Foot was inspired by the complex natural and cultural history of the diverse cultures and ecosystems that characterize the Central Andes region. From the dry Pacific coast to the highland valleys and peaks, north toward Cusco and south into Patagonia and east into the vast wetlands and forests of the Amazon and Rio de la Plata watersheds, to this day the human and ecological communities found here are tightly connected.
We have applied these ancient connections to our company’s design and every day we work with clients, communities, guides, restaurants, hotels, drivers and other links in the chains of an emergent network of responsible adventure travel operators in the region. Our efforts to share the fantastically diverse ecoregions of the Central Andes with our clients in a sustainable way is contributes to the resilience of this part of the world, one that is rich in natural and cultural patrimony and, in many ways, extremely vulnerable to global challenges such as climate change and urbanization.

Incatour, Bolivia - Jan 4 - Jan 18, 2019
The trip to La Paz, Sucre and the Altiplano including Potosi, Uyuni and southern altiplano was excellent. We had a few days to adjust to the altitude flying in from NYC and Mexico City in La Paz (we all speak Spanish so no need for English guides etc and well connected to diverse local communities). We headed of to Copacabana and Titicaca Isla del Sol with Carlao a fine guide and caring individual and stayed at the excellent EcoLodge before heading back to Tiwanaku and la Paz. The walk was... read more

It was a great trip and experience
Lucia Berrios did a great job and I was extremely happy with her services. She even provided me with a phone number that I could call. I called that number and received immediate response.
4 days private trip, Bolivia - Dec 22 - Dec 25, 2018
It was an amazing trip and exceeded my expectation! Despite I was there during the dry season so it was a pity that I did not see the beautiful reflection, I saw the breathtaking flamingo and Red Lagoon and I took many amazing photos. Andrea is an excellent guide, and she is very friendly and informative. I would say she is a huge plus for our trip. All the accommodations we had for the four days were great, and the food they provided either by hotels or our guide was delicious. I really feel I mad either right decision by choosing Kimkim.
Photography documentary, Bolivia - Nov 8 - Nov 19, 2018
Trip planning was good. Communication was great. I had asked for a trip outside the normal tourist trip and the team complied well with my request. The overall price was way too high for what I received. The accommodations were as basic as I've ever seen in Latin America. I can't understand where $2700 USD went when planning this trip. My goal was to find hard evidence of climate change in the region. There wasn't any hard evidence. I know climate change is hard to capture in a photograph,... read more

I can't say enough good things about our experiences in Bolivia with kimkim. Our guides were all very knowledgeable. Guida was especially good in explaining the history of indigenous people of the AltoPlano. Each one was personable and experienced. Xemina showed us the wonders of the cable cars system and let us experience LaPaz in the air and on foot. Teresa did a fabulous job interacting with the ladies of C.O.M.C.A. collective. That experience was especially meaningful, as my son... read more

Lucia was fantastic. Always available and extremely helpful. All the tour guides and drivers (Ariel and Umberto in Toro Toro and especially Carla and Narcisso for the salt flats) were fantastic. Please make sure you keep giving them work. Loved Bolivia and would recommend it as a holiday destination to all my friends.
